"The Legend here rendered into English is the primitive legend of St. Clare, written about the time of her canonisation ... At one time it was attributed to St. Bonaventure, but more recently and generally to Thomas of Celano ... The authorship, however, is very doubtful ... The present English version has been made from a French translation of the sixteenth century."
Introduction.--Life and legend of St. Clare.--Passages from the "Fioretti", "Speculum perfectionis" and Thomas of Celano.--Four letters of St. Clare
